Organic credentials helps secure Source Bulk Foods deal

We’ve secured a major palletised distribution deal with The Source Bulk Foods, an international zero-waste food and household product brand that is helping consumers ditch plastic packaging and live more sustainably.

The business, which operates a franchise model across multiple countries, selected us for its expanding UK and Ireland business because of our sustainable credentials.

We’ve recently re-secured two new major industry accolades recognising our ability to offer high-end services to the retail sector and top-level storage and distribution solutions for the growing organic foods market.

The Source Bulk Foods carefully selected Aztek as its logistics partner because of our British Retail Consortium (BRC) AA Standard storage and distribution accreditation and the Organic Food Federation certification, both of which we achieved after extensive and far-reaching audits into our supply chain practices and procedures to guarantee the highest industry standards.

Managing director of The Source Bulk Foods, Mikayla Drummond-Murray, said: “Supply chain collaboration is the foundation of what we do so Aztek’s organic accreditation was a deciding factor in our rigorous selection – we have to find the right partners.”

The Source Bulk Foods currently operates stores in Battersea, Brighton, Chiswick, Richmond and West Hampstead, and will soon open in Crouch End and Putney, allowing shoppers to bring their own containers to purchase everything from organic wholefoods to sustainable household and beauty products.

Since it launched in the UK in 2018, its ethical philosophy has helped save over 40,000 kg from landfill and prevented 1,000,000 pieces of plastic packaging from being produced.

Managing director of Aztek Logistics, Stuart Charter, said: “Winning the Source Bulk Foods contract was a real feather in our cap and testament to the hard work of the team in re-securing the BRC AA Standard along with the Organic Food Federation accreditation.

“The deal sends a message across the logistics industry that supply chain management is more than moving items from A to B in a lorry – it’s about partnership and collaboration and being the best that you can be, as more customers expect the highest standards of service as a hygiene factor when they are tendering for new logistics partnerships.

“The accreditations really sets a business apart from its competitors and, as you would expect, achieving such recognition goes above and beyond simple industry rubber stamping.”
